4th of August Evangelos Poulinas “the outside”
Choreography and Performance: Evangelos Poulinas
Music: Singularity by Jon Hopkins
Every morning, you find the world largely as you left it. You are still you; the room in which you awake is the same one you went to sleep in. The outside world has not been rearranged. History hasn’t changed and the future remains unknowable. In other words, you wake up to reality. But whatever kind of reality you think you’re living in, you’re probably wrong. The universe is a computer, and everything that goes on in it can be explained in terms of information processing.
